Answers in Genesis (AiG) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit ministry organization based in the United States of America. AiG operates under a board of directors of godly individuals who establish, maintain, and uphold high standards of accountability for the entire ministry. This includes membership in and oversight by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), annual audits by an independent CPA firm, and regular consultation with our legal counsel and the Christian Law Association or the Alliance Defense Fund to make sure the ministry does all things excellently as unto the Lord. All annual governmental filings required by law are complied with in a diligent manner (e.g., IRS filings).
The AiG ministry has always relied on the advice, wisdom, and review of the very best international scientists available, including leading geologists, geneticists, astronomers, paleontologists, and theologians. The majority of these professionals have no official association with AiG, except a common desire to develop the most excellent information and materials possible, to honor Christ, to advance the church, and to further the growing community spirit of Christian scientists who love God’s Word.
AiG’s commitment to excellence extends to every facet of the ministry, from the website to publications and the Creation Museum. For instance, the Creation Museum has a committed board of Ph.D. content experts in a number of fields, both inside and outside the ministry, who are consulted about every exhibit. These respected scientists review each other’s work and work closely with AiG staff to ensure that the ministry presents the very best that the Christian scientific community has to offer.
Answers in Genesis believes in accountability. Our foremost accountability is to God as we daily serve Him. Secondly, we stand accountable to the gracious people who support the AiG ministry with their prayers and donations. Lastly, the CEO and staff are accountable to a godly board of directors. As we stand and speak in defense of the Holy Scriptures from the very first verse in Genesis to an increasingly hostile world, AiG would covet your prayers, and we thank you for your friendship.
“Now that I have updated, revised, and expanded The Lie, I believe it’s an even more powerful, eyeopening book for the church—an essential resource to help all of us to understand the great delusion that permeates our world! The message of The Lie IS the message of AiG and why we even exist! It IS the message God has laid on our hearts to bring before the church! It IS a vital message for our time.”
– Ken Ham, president and founder of AiG–U.S.
